For this blog hop, I decided to finally make a mini album about a camping trip we did with the American Heritage Girls and Trail Life Boys last first weekend of fall:

So far I only finished 2 pages, and have everything planned for the following 10 pages. It was a fun trip to South Llano Texas state park and we too way too many pictures.

This is the first inside page:

The inside of the acrylic cover page:

I will have 4 acrylic pages in total inside of this fun 6x6 album.

This is the first regular page:

My daughter is the girl with the bandana.
The back of this page has a tap which opens. I have in total 3 pages with taps:

I added this border sticker to mimic a tap to grab the tap page:

The page with the open tap:

I hope to finish this album over the weekend and will update this post with finished pages asap.

These are material I used:

From Kaiser crafts:

A close up to the cover page and the ribbons for binging. They will adorn the o-rings  that I will use for the binding when I gave the album completed:

I hope you liked this album.

Be sure to hop over to my friend Kim
